Ever read ANNE OF GREEN GABLES? Bet you have. Well, whether or not you have you are going to want to read ANA OF CALIFORNIA by Andi Teran. It’s a modern-day more adult retelling of the tale.
When Ana finds herself kicked out of yet another foster home, she expects to be put right back in another. In and out of homes is all she’s known since she became an orphan. But, a big surprise is in store for this fifteen-year-old. Her case worker has decided to try something new for Ana, something outside of the box. And she ships her off to a coastal farming community in a more northern area of California. Ana has only known Los Angeles. So she is in for a culture shock.
This fascinating novel takes on the plight of the migrant workers, while showing us the hard-working side of the organic farming community.You’ll certainly find the characters hard to forget. And Ana endearing.
